The mid '60s was another universe – witness this minute-long newsreel fossicked from the bowels of the British Pathé Museum by PLB's honorary Archive Detective Ian Lording.

Cue the triumphant voiceover: "The shark research society says the Japanese have almost cleared the NSW coast of sharks! The more shark fins they eat in Japan the safer Australian beaches will be!"

Shots of shark fins which are delicacy in Japan. Low angle view of Sydney Harbour Bridge at night. LS. The trawler leaving Sydney at night on a shark fin hunt back to Japan.
